  1. Awesome video! I love watching the RAAF Roulettes. They're just magnificent. I had the pleasure of looking around inside and sitting in the cabin of the HARS Connie at the Avalon Airshow one year. Such a beautiful aircraft.
  2. Great stuff! I was just recently watching the Milviz (Blackbird Simulations) video where the developers were discussing the shaking of the throttle levers and also the gauge needles on the Beaver. It was a really interesting video, as they usually are.
  3. It was working for me John. You just need to use the keyboard under the screen on the PFD for basic controls. You can see in my first pic I have just lifted off.
  4. I just found out about this from a Reddit user. If you load up the DA62, turn the ELT to on, the PFD screen turns in to a simulator within a simulator. You can select FS1 through to FS4.
  5. You can try tagging them in a post. Either this post or a new one in general discussion. You can use the "@"symbol to tag somone. Then that person could private message you.
  6. When you go to the Navigraph website, there is a tab at the top right called "Downloads" here you'll find al the installers for what you need to install. In general just install Navigraph charts on to any device you want to use it on. I have it installed on my PC, laptop, and phone. You could also just install it on your laptop if that's the only place you want to look at charts. Then there is a little program called Simlink, and this needs to be installed on to the PC where your flightsim is installed, and on the laptop where Navigraph Charts is installed. Simlink is what connects the two devices so you can see your aircraft on the moving map, charts, diagrams etc. You can actually see your aircraft symbol on certain charts such as airport/taxi diagram, SID/STAR charts, etc, or on the VFR or IFR map. Navigraph also has FMS update options, depending on which supscription you want to get, that will update FMS navigation databases for aircraft like PMDG 737, FS Labs A320, and many more aircraft and programs, like VOXATC, Active Sky etc etc. I think if you want a subscription for Navigraph charts really depends on if you use charts much. You can get free VFR moving map programs like Little Nav Map and others, so the difference for Navigraph is mainly the FMS updates (if you choose that) and the frequently updated charts.
  7. Hi Paul, Yes you can also run Navigraph Charts on a separate device at the same time, and the moving map will work. It will work on a separate laptop, tablet or even phone, as long as they are connected to the internet.
  8. Short answer, yes they do. The current list of sceneries is different to the original list. I'm not sure how often they rotate though.
  9. Happy Birthday Terry!!! Have a fantastic day, well, night now. Have a beer for me. Cheers,
  10. RIP TeeCee. That is really sad news. Terry was very generous with his time, sharing general info and files with me, and was very welcoming when I first started flightsimming and joined OzX back around 2010. He was a genuinely helpful, generous, caring, funny guy and was at the same time not afraid to speak his mind, and did so on the forums on many occasions. You will be missed Terry. Condolences to his family.
  11. As Joe says, there is no doubt that DRM is an ongoing conversation behind closed doors of most developers and publishers. IMO there needs to be a balance between DRM and user freedom and ease of use, and for the most part I think most current devs and publishers strike that balance well. There are some devs I can think of that got it wrong, going too heavy on DRM, and as a result their products became a PITA to install and reinstall and people would refuse to buy their products ever again, even when the addons themselves were superb. I bought an aircraft from Simmarket, mainly to support a new developer, but after adding a new M2 drive to my PC I have never been able to reinstall that aircraft again due to heavy DRM that apparently had one activation.
  12. Hi, Welcome to the forums. Which product/addon are you referring to? More information would be helpful for folks to assist in solving your problem.
  13. Beauties Jase! The F-35 looks right at home there.
  14. I had never seen the video before, but thanks to your post I looked it up. Wow, it literally did just drop off. Great flying to more or less overcome that. https://www.facebook.com/WINNewsIllawarra/videos/sir-charles-kingsford-smiths-aircraft/1864605216956552/
  15. Great to see this famous aircraft will be pride of place at the new terminal. I stumbled across this plane one day when wandering around Adelaide airport while waiting for a flight, having no idea it was there previously. It is/was currently in an outdoor display building which is at the rear of the airport near the outdoor car park, it could even be the staff car park. I spent a good hour or two checking it out and didn't see another person there the whole time. My sister and brother in law who live near Adelaide had no idea it was there, and I would be surprised if many of the locals knew it was there. I always thought it was a fascinating looking plane, and was blown away when I saw it up close. Seeing it in person I was even more astounded at the flight that it made in it in 1919!
  16. I'm not really across it myself in MSFS, but this post at FSDeveloper confirms that a spot can be added using ADE for MSFS, or the built in Dev mode. https://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/threads/adding-a-parking-spot-to-a-default-airport.454223/ Following the steps in the ADE manual and/or posting any questions on how to do it in the ADE thread at FSDeveloper are probably the best bet. Jon from Scruffyduck (ADE) is a staff member at FSDeveloper also, and is very helpful, as are many other users.
  17. There was sadly a mid air collision between one of these paramotors and a Cessna Caravan recently, in the Houston area. It happened December 21. Apparently the collision occurred in Class E airspace at around 5000 feet. There were comments made in a video report I was watching saying that 5000 feet was high for a paramotor. That wasn't indicated as a cause at all, just that being even that high was not the norm for these type of aircraft.
  18. Nice shot. Actually I agree, inclement weather and times around dawn and dusk can actually make for the best shots at times.
  19. Hi Jack, not sure about the red roofs, but good point. It's kind of similar in Melbourne. Most extended city/suburb areas seem to have more tiled roofs than tin, and I suppose the range of colours is limited to earthy colours. There are a range of colurs from reddish to brownish, and I guess they are just natural colours for the clay they make tiles from. Greyish/blue tiles are also fairly common. You're right about the size too. Both Sydney and Melbourne are huge if you include the outer suburbs. I work all over Melbourne, and it can take me two hours some days to drive from one side of Melbourne to the other, and that's not even from the extreme edges. Then again, some days if the traffic is heavy, and if I leave at a bad time, it will take me one hour to drive home from work; about a 15km drive .
  20. I really liked this video, for the awesome wing view along with some nice views of Sydney and the airport.
  21. Very interesting Frank. I had never heard of this technique. I will look at it more closely for sure. I fly airliners a lot in the sim, and I am not too bad at flaring, but that is generally due to the assistance of radar altimeter callouts, which give you a cadence to follow and are very helpful in judging when to flare in certain aircraft. I am not as capable in GA aircraft, and do think it based more on feel, and it seems like a bit of a guess sometimes.
